From USDA July 14, 2014

The weather continued to be highly conducive to field work as the dry conditions allowed a significant amount of wheat harvesting to occur. According to the USDA, NASS, Great Lakes Region, there were 5.0 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending July 13. Average temperatures recorded around the State ranged from 68 to 76 degrees or five degrees below to six degrees above normal. The lowest recorded temperature was 52 degrees and the highest was 93 degrees. The statewide average temperature for the week was 73.0 degrees, 0.2 degrees colder than normal.

 

Recorded precipitation ranged from 0.00 to 3.36 inches, with a statewide average of 0.74 inches. Most areas have benefited from the dry weather, though a few areas are beginning to get too dry. Winter wheat harvest progress continues to outpace 2013 while remaining behind the five year average. Oat harvesting is moving at a slower pace than the wheat harvest. Corn and soybean progress are behind compared to last year and the five year average. The first cuttings of all types of hay are nearly finished, and some producers have moved on to a second cutting.
